From LEGO guns mastermind and 17–year-old YouTube sensation Jack Streat comes LEGO Heavy Weapons, a collection of complete building instructions for four truly impressive, 1:1-scale replicas of the world’s most iconic firearms.
LEGO Heavy Weapons will show you how to build brick-based models of:
– A massive Desert Eagle handgun, with working blowback action
– The compact but deadly AKS-74U assault rifle with folding stock
– A bolt-action Lee Enfield sniper rifle (a.k.a. Jungle Carbine) with bipod and scope
– A pump action SPAS combat shotgun
Each set of instructions includes a complete parts listing, so you can find (or special order) any hard-to-find bricks. The book’s illustrated, step-by-step building instructions will be clear to anyone who’s ever played with LEGO bricks, and the biggest models will challenge and delight even the most serious builders.
